Your old Samsung phones, while in storage, may be at risk of blowing up

Arun of Mrwhosetheboss has brought up an issue about Samsung phones blowing up:

My own Samsung Galaxy Note 8, being with me for 5 years now, is decidedly showing wear as its battery cannot hold its charge as well as before. Except for the fact that it’s running on an Exynos chipset, I didn’t really have any more complaints about it. And with the Oneplus green screen issue that I personally experienced, I was ready to embrace the Samsung ecosystem.

The Galaxy devices I currently actively use include:

  1. Samsung Galaxy Note 8
  2. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G
  3. Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 LTE
  4. Samsung Galaxy Buds2
  5. Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic

For all these devices I have, I had no experience with swollen batteries (so far!). This may be the case as I actively use them. But this is not an excuse for Samsung. As mentioned in the video (and also in the comments section), how come it mostly affected Samsung devices only?

This issue has to be addressed by Samsung soon. Otherwise, they’ll lose one loyal customer in me in the future.
